Sorry, I was using strftime as a generic standin for "everything that
LC_TIME affects".  Trace the usage of backend/utils/adt/pg_locale.c
to see what's really at stake there.

The practical issues would likely be things like type money using a
currency symbol that's given in the wrong encoding.

And of course you did get the point that we already know a bogus
LC_MESSAGES setting leads directly to error-stack-overflow PANIC.
